Nice paintwork there. Going to toss some LED 3157's in or just stick with incandecent?

It was a MAJOR pain in the *** to get the old sealant off. Lol.

Yeah, I'm planning on it. But I have other things I want to do before I get to that.

If you're going for a plug and play option, I'd highly recommend getting 'em where I got mine. Here's a link. Still going strong, although you will want an electronic flasher.

They're a little on the expensive side, but I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for". https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...-car/917/2265/

That is definitely what I'm looking for. I don't want anything too fancy or will ever require me to open that god damn casing again on my headlights.

I'll take a look at that link. I'll definitely get those when I have the money.

Here's the finished product.

I don't really like how the corners turned out. I think they look pretty shitty, but I love the headlights.

06 corners look the best when painted, imo. The orange inside breaks up the black.

Something else is to leave the outer/upper ridge chrome while just painting the inset black or vice versa.

Yeah, I think I just painted mine a little too dark. Because you can barely see the orange inside :(

You could pop them back apart and use lacquer thinner on a rag to start over.

Another little update here:

I'm selling the 315/75/R16 Hankook Dynapro MT's I bought the other day, and going on a little trip tomorrow to look at (probably buy) a set of 315/75/R16 Nitto Trail Grappler MT's on some Moto Metal rims.

I'm selling the Hankook's because there is not much tread left on them, and I bought them for really cheap, and the Nitto's supposedly have 75% tread left, so those will be the tires I run when I get my lift in.

Parts have arrived.

Not included in this picture are the UCA's and LBJ's that I will be replacing during the lift.

Nice and tall, like an offroad vehicle should be. You should consider some cargo lights.

Just wondering, what type of bed-liner did you use for the hood, tailgate, and the rock guards? Did you get them sprayed or done yourself? It looks really good.

Thanks man. I used a product called 'Duplicolor Truck Bed Coating', it's an okay product, it is cheap. The product can be rolled on or sprayed on, I decided to spray on but should have rolled it on.

PS: sorry for the late reply, I hardly come on here anymore because it's so inactive, I'm always over at fordrangerforum.com

Thanks man. And what kind of cargo lights do you think would look good?

The best would be
either the OEM factory lens, like what I have, or perhaps some lighting of sorts in the bed itself; such as some LED rock lights bolted to the sides of the inside of the bed, like what you would normally install in your wheel wells.

It's not ideal.

But I don't put anything in the truck bed, or wheel it. I think blocks will do fine.

That's sketchy as hell. Wouldn't recommend running that any longer than you have to.

It'll probably be temporary, it's what Superlift gave to me for the rear lift.
